New Commits

USHL vet Mike Seidel committed to Minnesota-Duluth. Seidel took visits to Ferris State, Michigan Tech, Western Michigan, and Quinnipiac. It sounds like he committed to UMD after talking with a couple former Cedar Rapids teammates. It's nice to see UMD has gotten past the Mason Raymond "You don't want to come to school here" era.

Also, Chris Heisenberg lists Edina defenseman Brendan Baker as committing to Holy Cross, which, like, whoa. I really like the way that Baker plays and think he's one of the best defensemen in the Minnesota HS ranks, and Holy Cross is, well, Holy Cross. Not that they're a bad team by any stretch, I just would have guessed he'd end up somewhere more known for their hockey program, so that seems like a huge recruiting win for their program.

Side note, I know my street cred in Atlantic Hockey is already perilously low after this past week, but it took me 7 guesses before I guessed what state Holy Cross was in. I don't know what I was thinking when I guessed Hawaii. Also, no mention of Holy Cross would be complete without this.

Anyway, it looks like Baker will start college right away out there, and should have a very good career out there.

Big week for the Bulldogs recruiting wise. By big I mean number of recruits signed.

Holy Cross? Crap, I'm not sure. I listed out my 10 picks on where they are. I checked them against USCHO and I'm barely better than you; I was right on the 6th guess.

And there's no such thing as watching that video too much.

Chris, the video with the Holy Cross Announcers is much, much better.

"Wisc. has Philip Samuelsson coming in for visit, he is son of Coyotes coach and currently on Chicago Steel, '91 birthdate." Why has Wisco not gone after lil' Chelios? Heard Chris would love to have his son there but Eaves flushed him. He's in Chicago now and putting up numbers why not a glance his way? Is Eaves afraid it would be too crowded to have another NHLer from Wisco around. Is it an ego thing again?

The Holy Cross victory has to be seen over and over and over again. The Holy Cross announcers are great!
